We tend to stay away from moisturisers and serums when our skin gets oily, but sometimes we fail to realise that this can be, in fact, counterintuitive. Oily skin is often a sign of imbalance in our skin's oil and moisture levels. Which means that it is particularly important to keep it nourished, especially since oil tends to hide dry skin spots. Check out some of these serums that might be suitable for oily skin types of any condition.
